Have you heard about an oil-cleansing method?
Sounds like it’s a big no-no for your skin right? But believe me that it has a great benefit on your skin.
We always heard that oil-free products can make your skin clear and gorgeous however according to researchers oil has a lot of incredible, soothing, and healing benefits for your skin. It can be done to all types of skin, including the oily and acne-prone type of skin ( hey will definitely benefit from this type of cleansing)
What is Oil-Cleansing?
It is a way of deep cleansing your skin without stripping the essential moisture that your skin needs. It is not true that it can cause breakouts because oil can remove dirt, grime, pollution, makeup, and sunscreen. It binds to all of these clogging substances and more, so it's easy to remove.
And for everyone who will be asking if it can also remove excess oil on your face—DEFINITELY! Because oil dissolves oil, the cleansing oil cleverly clings to the excess oil on your skin.
Many women have already embraced this method in cleansing their face because they do feel a difference from doing it. So how to oil cleanse your skin?
Put 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil that are suitable for your type of skin on your palm.
Apply to your face and massage it for a minute or two to remove impurities like dirt, makeup, dead skin cells, and other unwanted residues. Let it penetrate your skin.
Use a warm damp cloth to gently wipe away the oil from your skin. It is best to use a smooth, soft washcloth. Remember to keep your skin hydrated but not greasy or irritated from wiping it down.
Pat dry with a towel and apply moisturizer as needed.
